03 Dec Running S”miles”
How many people do you see looking a bit unhappy as they run?
Do you think smiling makes a difference? I do. If you are looking and feeling happy you are more likely to be relaxed and enjoy your run. You are also more likely to have an effect on others as you pass them by.
How often do you leave the house for your training run and within the first few hundred metres feel better than you did when you left? Unless you have injured yourself probably most times.
If you want to find ways to enjoy your running even more then find a place where you will enjoy it. Try a beach, run in a park, run through water (oh I think we may have provided that J). Go somewhere different, run with a friend, run alone, explore a place you have only driven past, challenge yourself to find a new place to run every week or month, when you go to a new town use your run as your introduction to it, rate the places you visit by the running options, go to a wood and run in and out of trees, basically release your inner child and allow adventures to become part of your running.
If you choose to enjoy it you probably will run better.
